    There are a few unfortunate sand-throughs, but nothing that the 3-feet view will notice. I may go over it with another polish, but otherwise this ready for reassembling.

    I think he used a special kind of elbow grease on that!

    Just weighed the body before I start reassembling, and somehow it still weighs pretty much what it did at last weigh-in: 2.27kg. This is after staining and 28 coats of Tru-Oil.

    All of the previous measures were during a long hot dry spell. Then we had a fairly humid period while it was curing, then dry again when I sanded and polished.

    Very curious.

    Also, bought a cheeky little 15W amp for the garage. $40 off Marketplace. Very impressive little package. The drive channel with the mids dropped gives me some very happy early 90s metal feels.

    So 28 very thin coats of tru-oil!

    Also, neat testing amp.

    Every garage needs a practice amp.
